A helpful hint for building 2.6" rockets

Many 2.6" mid-power rockets require you to stand the rocket on end for things like wood glue fillet on motor mounts. Many also have protruding engine tubes and screws that don't allow you to easily stand it on its end.

The answer is a small plastic cup that holds it upright while allowing the protruding parts to fit in the center of the cup. It's a dannon 6oz yougurt cup, and it's 79 cents at the grocery with yogurt included for those building-session munchies.
